“When I first started writing music as a kid I would write kind of ‘parody music’ as alter egos,” DeRobertis adds. “I always tried to make the music sound as polished and professional as possible but the lyrical content was embarrassingly dumb. I like the Rutles because it’s cool to see that concept done properly — the songs are spot-on pastiches but they actually hold their own!”
